New photo gallery up tonight!

I've added a new gallery of photos.

Doors and Windows: Provence and Italy
These are images that I shot last year while on vacation with Sandy in Provence and Florence..
Due to the fact that I'm shooting digitally and not using a large view camera with an adjustable bellows, I needed to take the images into Photoshop and square them off (remove the keystoning effect of pointing a camera up at things).
Color corrected, re-shaped, enhanced where I felt the need to remove something from the image.
Next step: I'll look for a retailer..

I have a list of places that I'd like to be selling my images; I'm about 3/4 of the way through developing a sales CD for them. Just need a few more hours to get it finished, provide some sample prints, and do a mail-out.

I'm not sending out to hundreds of places: I think I have ten retailers on the list.

I'm aiming to finish it by next weekend.

Post the first

My first post on this blog.
My name is Pat.
I take photographs that dredge up the memories of long forgotten still life images.
My first series is food based. I consider it my kitchen and diningroom series.
My next series will be based around the living room and library.
Stay tuned!
